no-- you're just guessing. are you too busy to watch what you're cooking? tired of all that burnt food going to waste? worried about your kids getting burned or a loved one starting a fire in the kitchen? well, those problems are a thing of the past. introducing the revolutionary precision induction cooktop from nuwave, the leader in portable induction cooking technology. the nuwave heats up twice as fast, uses up to 70% less energy and is safer than any cooktop. best of all, the nuwave is the only portable cooktop that gives you precise temperature control with the simple press of a button. professional chefs create great-tasting meals by maintaining the precise temperature for the perfect amount of time. well, now you can get professional results too, with the nuwave precision induction cooktop. >> the key to great food is knowing how to control the temperatures of what you're cooking. >> now the p.i.c. is allowing people at home to cook like you can in a restaurant. >> i know that when i turn it on that temperature, it's going to be that temperature. there's no guessing.
>> announcer: not only does the nuwave give you precise temperature control, it heats up twice as fast as an electric cooktop. >> i put the water in the pan and turned around and the next thing i knew, it was boiling. >> what amazes me about p.i.c. is how quickly it will heat up. induction technology is just unbelievable. >> announcer: and because there's no flame to catch fire, no hot coils to burn you, the nuwave precision induction cooktop is the safest cooktop ever invented. look what happens with this egg: the pan is hot, but the cooktop is not. that's the magic of induction cooking. make pasta in half the time. melt butter with no chance of it burning. melt chocolate to creamy perfection. make sauces with perfect temperature control. >> it's small, it's efficient, it's clean and it's safe. >> announcer: and because it's portable, you can take it anywhere, so it's perfect for buffets and outdoor parties. to tell you more, let's join bob warden and jenny repko at the nuwave test kitchen in chicago. >> let me ask you, do you hate
make in the kitchen? do you hate burnt grilled cheese sandwiches or shriveled-up bacon? >> what about over-fried chicken that's all greasy, or dried-out oatmeal, overdone pork chops or charred steak? >> well, what if i was to tell you that instead, you could now have perfect grilled cheese sandwiches, perfectly browned evenly every single time? >> all that cheese is melted in there, so delicious. >> perfectly melted. and i could have perfectly grilled steaks set at 350 degrees that give me a perfect medium rare steak or however you like it and it's never going to burn. perfect pork chops, and not only pork chops... >> right, salmon, grilled vegetables, sausage, perfect every time. >> what if i told you, when you fried your chicken, it was going to be fried at the perfect temperature of 375, gently, perfectly, crispy, never soaking up too much oil. >> that's hard to do. >> in fact, that's the problem with the old stovetops, whether it's gas or electric-- you can turn it up and down, but because you don't have precise control, you're going to get boil-overs. because you don't have precise
control, you're going to burn the cereal on the bottom from time to time. and because you don't have precise temperature control, you can't help but burn a steak or a pork chop on your stove. you see, you're not the bad cook in the kitchen. the stovetop is the bad cook in the kitchen. >> that's right, and those days of bad cooking are over, thanks to the fine folks here at nuwave, makers of the number-one-selling countertop oven in the world. >> well, they've done it again. you're looking at the new wave in stovetop cooking. now, this ingenious invention will make your life a whole lot easier in the kitchen and a whole lot shorter and a lot more fun. we're going to show you how and why every meal-- breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, grilled steaks, fondues and buffets-- will be made perfectly every time. becausnow, for the first time, you can precisely control the cooking temperature. >> announcer: now you can live well for less with the nuwave precision induction cooktop. it's the most energy-efficient
way to cook. the nuwave p.i.c. uses induction technology. the secret is an internal series of copper coils. these coils generate a magnetic field within your metal pots and pans. the magnetic field causes invisible molecules to begin vibrating rapidly, creating heat, so the cookware itself heats the food. >> one of my passions are butter sauces. and one of the challenges of cooking a butter sauce is that if you get it too hot, you know, over 135 degrees, it breaks down. if you get it too cool, it congeals. the beauty of the nuwave p.i.c. is that i can control the temperature exactly and keep the sauce for an extended period of time. that's such an added bonus for a professional cook and a home cook. >> let me show you this unusual pan. bob, what did we do here? >> well, we actually cut a pan and cut a section out, because in here you can see we have cereal rapidly boiling, right? >> boiling away. >> i can put my hand right there. >> it's amazing. move your hand. i'm going to put an ice cube right there.
